I agree with latour67, I prefer not to deal with little-known internet companies, especially when dealing with futures sales that won't be realized for another 2 or 3 years. It's a long time to wait and see whether you have been taken or not. I prefer to go through my local reputable wine shop!
I was curious Latour67 about where you would recommend a Memphian to shop for wine and futures. I know about Buster's but I have just got on a wine kick since visiting Napa. I didn't know if there was a store that you like and wouldn't mind recommending. Thanks, Mike
Shields Fine Wines & Spirits on Germantown Parkway, because Shields Hood is a wine educator and he regularly has tastings and teaches classes. He just opened last year so he is still working on building his stock, but most importantly, he knows wines! I recently read his Master of Wine Dissertation on---"Cooperage and the Grape". It was impressive research.
Buster's has a lot of inventory and there are some nice people in the wine area, especially John & Tiffany; and I think Tiffany teaches a wine course at the University of Memphis.
Kirby Wines & Liquors also has a nice selection.
As for Futures, I assume you are talking about Bordeaux Futures, but currently I am not buying any Bordeaux wines. You should check www.winex.com . I have bought Futures from them in the past, and they have always been delivered on a prompt basis. Also, they have delivered everything that I've ordered...
I ordered today most of my 2003 Bordeaux futures (all 750 ml bottles): 12 x Ch.d'Armailhac 89-92PP/92-94WS @ EUR 15,75 12 x Ch.Gazin 87-89PP/89-91WS @ EUR 23,85 12 x Ch.Citran 2003 @ EUR 8,55 12 x Ch.Lagrange 89-91PP/92-94WS @ EUR 17,10 12 x Ch.Léov.Barton 94-96+PP/95-100WS@ EUR 30,50 12 x Ch.Lascombes 91-93PP/89-91WS @ EUR 24,30 12 x Rollan de By @ EUR 11,52
Upon delivery I have to pay another 16% German-VAT-Tax (Sales Tax)to the above stated prices.
I intend to order also: Ch.Leov.-Poyferre Ch.Langoa-Barton and Clos Du Marquise
But the are not yet released in Europe.
